Did They Really Say That?!?

The grand reason of the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently based upon polygamy, according to the testimony of the philosophers who rose in that age. A belief in the doctrine of a plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesus and his followers. We might almost think they were ‘Mormons.’

(Jedediah Grant, Journal of Discourses 1:346)”. Jesus Was Married, p. 48 by Ogden Kraut.

Firstly, Jesus was never married. Nowhere in the Bible will find that notion even hinted at. Secondly, God did not and does not approve of polygamy, as I prove in this article.

The Pharisees and Sadducees were against Jesus because of His teachings, not because he was a polygamist. What you see here instead is another Mormon lie. Mormon polygamy was initiated by Joseph Smith to excuse away his serial adultery. To say God approves of such sexual immorality is nothing less than abject blasphemy.
